I'm curious to see if Kentucky can build upon their success from the 2018-2019 season. They stood pat against SEC competition and then had a good bowl win. Stoops seems to have them in a solid place and is recruiting well.

I'm also VERY curious to watch Scott Satterfield in Louisville. I've followed him for a very long time ever since he was a player/assistant/HC at Appalachian State, and I believe he has what it takes to eke out a few wins against the big dogs (he nearly won @ Georgia, @ Tennessee, and @Penn State for crying out loud!) Maybe with time and luck he'll be a pest against Dabo for us.

If things keep trending upward, there could be 5-6 solid teams throughout IN/KY/OH.

Amazing, the Cavs have better ownership and a more competent coaching search than the Los Angeles Lakers. From a pure basketball standpoint this is a great hire from Gilbert.

I'm howling at TTUN though, they lose their one palatable coach for the one sport they're decent at, and he leaves for Ohio, taking Cleveland this year over Detroit last year! 

This is huge news for Holtmann imo, he's already recruiting so well, and now there's one less competitor trying to siphon Ohio high school talent away. 2 years from now and the Basketbucks will be dominating the B1G once more!

My go-to used to be Bobby Petrino at Louisville, but he's out to pasture now.

Since the usual suspects have been named, I'd like to personally submit Mack Brown. The man phoned in every announcer role ESPN gave him, left early at times, and his analysis was trash for someone coaching for as long as he did. An old buddy of mine recently sent me a picture of him and UNC recruits holding a model of TEXAS' 2005 natty trophy; who does that??

Hated him when he was at Texas, will probably hate him in his Sunset Revival tour.

Really don't wish for Haskins to be in Washington tbh. One of the worst owners in the league, the field is a QB killer, etc. No offense to Redskins fans, they all deserve better.

I guess it's his hometown (maybe?) team, and he can make the Giants seriously regret passing on him, but I feel there are way better places for him to have landed.

I think this is it. Remember that during the season, Herbert from Oregon was being spoken of as the consensus #1QB. Offseason rolls around, and now all the draft "experts" say Murray is the clear favorite (despite not fully performing at the combine or his pro day).

IMO there aren’t enough scouts with knowledge watching college football. Every team has gotten themselves hyped up for the 2020 and even 2021 classes, it’s unreal. You have front offices out here wondering how they can get away with tanking to land Tua next year or Lawrence in a few seasons. Hype is a terrible metric to bet your team’s future on, regardless of how talented those QBs look on a stacked college roster.

I hope Haskins falls to someone with a decent roster and veteran QB he can learn behind. Make up that missed draft bonus $ with on-field performance and longevity on a proven winner.

I hate everything about playing Wisconsin. So infuriating. Hate their flopping and whining, but so proud of the comeback our guys showed.

Need at least a win against IU in the B1G Tourney if they want to hope for a bubble bid. Next year is looking bright!

Enter nightmare mode. Lots of mistakes for the youth to overcome for next season, but there’s no better motivator than getting an ass-kicking.

"Dabo" and Clemson have some serious skeletons in their closet. No one rebounds into conference champs/natty contenders/retaining the brightest DC around, not after taking a 70-point shellacking in the Orange Bowl.

Yes, I know it sounds like sour grapes. Yes, I know Day will need time to build a win column. But when Clempsun and Mr. Baptist Preacher are snatching top out-of-state kids away from the likes of Alabama and Ohio State, something is up. The PED %s got 0 media attention and should have been way more alarming. A middling program prior to 2012 does not come by such rapid and exponential success cleanly.
